Well, I am just so thrilled and have to share. When I logged onto my account I was so excited to find that one of my photographs had received Editors Choice.

This is a great article. The more I do it, the easier it gets, but it's still hard. I have to push past the fear, because I am more and more surprised at what a positive response I get!
